Police hunt man for early morning attacks on women near Savin Hill T stop

The Boston Police Department says a man has tried to get two women into his vehicle and chased a third over the past month near the Savin Hill T station.

All of the incidents happened between 5:30 and 6 a.m., most recently on Friday, police say, adding that in that incident, the man tried to force a woman into his car near 130 Auckland St.

"A female victim was walking on the sidewalk near 130 Auckland Street in Dorchester when she heard a car driving up behind her at a high rate of speed," police say in a statement. "The car, described as a red, older model, box style motor vehicle, then came to a sudden stop next to the victim and an unidentified 30 year old Hispanic male, 5’08 with a stocky build and a scruffy beard jumped out of the car and attempted to grab the victim. The victim observed that the suspect’s pant appeared to be unzipped. The victim ran away from the suspect but he chased after her and grabbed her, attempting to pull her back towards the car. The victim was able to slip out of the grasp of the suspect and fled across Dorchester Avenue where multiple people came to her aid. The suspect then fled the area on Dorchester Avenue towards Columbia Road."

The first incident, on Oct. 5, happened in the parking lot at that location, police say:

"A female victim was walking through the parking lot of 130 Auckland Street in Dorchester when an unidentified 25 to 30 year old Hispanic male got out of a black van and gestured for her to get in. The victim ignored the suspect and continued to walk. The suspect then blocked her path and pulled down his pants, exposing himself to the victim. The victim started yelling at the suspect and distanced herself from him. The suspect hastily jumped back into the van and fled in an unknown direction."

On Nov. 2, the man went after a woman on Savin Hill Avenue, police say:

"A female victim was jogging in the area of 121 Savin Hill Avenue when she observed an unidentified Hispanic male with wavy hair in a ponytail sitting inside a red, newer model Toyota sedan with his pants undone. After she ran past the car it began to follow her and continued to do so until she stopped a bicyclist for assistance."
